Birkensnake moth

Birkensnake is an irregularly published, imperfectly bound collection of fiction. Fiction! Paper! Thread! It is exactly what you want in your lifeboat.

Birkensnake 6, the most recent installment, was edited in seven different versions by seven different teams of guest editors, strangers to each other until they signed on to the project. Print editions were made by seven different bookmakers. Many people were part of this Birkensnake, even more people than usual, more than we are comfortable thinking of. Print copies are now gone, but most of the contents, as well as some further reflections on the whole episode, are available online.

If you donated to Birkensnake 6 through Kickstarter, you should have your reward in hand by now. If you do not, please e-mail us at


There is no such thing as a subscription to Birkensnake, mainly because we are never really sure if we’re going to make another one, and then when we do make one we never know how many copies we’ll have. But if you are interested in having us e-mail you about new issues when they come out, for example so that you can order them, you should consider subscribing to our mailing list, which we maintain for exactly that purpose.


If you are a writer of fiction, please consider submitting your work for Birkensnake 7.
